of his defense of that claim, karl? >> i thought it was ludicrous. the president said if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor period. he didn't say you will have to pay a lot more to keep your doctor unmy plan. frankly from the very beginning, one of the principle assumptions of obamacare is, that there are too many choices. that people have too many choices when it comes to ininsurance policies. so let's make them all look-alike. and you have too many choices when it comes to doctors and providers. so let's do thing in the design of the law that necessarily limit the number of providers and number of doctors you will have access to. that necessarily means the president was absolutely lying when he said if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. bill: full-throated defense, karl. people aren't stupid. wallace said the president guaranteed me i could keep my doctor. emanuel said, if you want to, you can pay for it. >> exactly. you can have anything you want as you come up with the jack for it. look, this is why i'm amazed, first of all they try to defend it. the presiden

on the appropriations committee, that sequestration is unlivable. >> that being the defense industry. >> yes, mostly. on top of that, the next which takes spending to $967 billion almost comes exclusively out of defense. another $20 billion cut around january 15th strictly from defense budgets. so there's an appetite among the hawkish wing of the house republicans to just get rid of this. they realize that if they are going to get rid of this, they have to give in a little bit. >> weirdly, sequestration is now having the impact they believed it would to get a deal in the first place, untenable budget cuts. i think jonathan's point is really important. this is, if you're watching at home, this isn't the grand bargain. politics is the art of only the possible. the possible in this case is something very small. there is clearly no appetite for brinksmanship again. it is getting what they can get done. not getting into a bigger intractable fight that might shut down the government or cause really hard political pain on either side explaining to their base what they are getting but what they are giving u

systems, with contractors, with high-ranking officials. different things within the defense department are usually cordoned off in situations like this. it is easy to chop the number of troops, easy to chop benefits. the one upside here is the pentagon is finally talking about long-term cost savings. they haven't had to. we're in a new environment. $17 trillion in debt. we've got to be more smart about how we spend pentagon dollars. but looking to commissaries as a place to start is the wrong place to start. let's look at everything but let's look at auditing the pentagon, finding the fat within the budget. let's look at the way we acquire weapons systems. there's billions in overruns and decades in delays in weapons systems. let's look at that before we look at military benefits and pay. >> i'm reading a third of the employees at these commissaries are military spouses. 30%. >> yes. >> that's another level of hits. >> these are community centers in many ways. the commissaries, the p.x.'s are the places where military families shop for a lot of different goods, where families work. if
australia is a aaa rated currency. so there are defensive sectors affecting the aussie. so the china affect is affecting in terms of trade side of on things. at the same time, you have flows supporting the aussie. so you have over the next few months debt coming into play and some interest in terms of flows into the aussie asset prices. so it may stay up around these levels, about 92, 93, unless we see major policy shifts going forward. >> let's talk about the yen. we're at six-month highs against the dollar. there's now talk that we might get another stimulus package out of japan. reuters is talking about this. what target have you got for dollar/yen? >> for the end of the your, we were initially targeting 105. towards 100, 105 towards the early part of next year. and end of the year, closer to the 105 levels. end of 2014 towards the 110 level. so if the policies of stimulus announcement comes out, i think the levels might start to sort of rise a bit earlier than expected. so essentially, the trajectory for dollar/yen is an upward trajectory. it's the target levels that need to be shifted.
defense. what did that nexus look like? >> it's good that you put it that way, anti-anti-apartheid because that's exactly what these people were. they would never actually come out and try to rationalize apartheid or try to sell apartheid to an american audience. i mean, that basically couldn't be done. but there were plenty of conservatives that had other ways of rationalizing it, the other one being the cold war, right? south africa was surrounded by hostile countries. if you asked a south african government to describe its enemies, p would always say they're communists. everyone surrounding us is a communist, you know. the anc is communist. and we've got to, you know, to struggle to defeat communism. in fact, it was an interesting country, you know, the apartheid regime. in some ways they were -- you know, they had this vision of the world as a gigantic communist conspiracy that was very familiar to a lot of american conservatives. >> i want to look at -- congresswoman, i want to read this headline, they put this up today. this was kind of an ab amazing revelation that came out in 1995.
. republicans and some democrats including chuck hagel at the pentagon who don't like the level of defense spending the way it's squeezed by the budget sequester and it gets squeezed more in 2014 by the sequester proportionately than domestic programs do. that gives some impetus for republicans to go along. democrats are raising the caps by an equal amount on the domestic side of the budget. these are things, priorities the democrats have for social programs, republicans have for defense, which are getting relieved and stitching together solutions to fill in the gaps financially even at a little deficit reduction on top of that, things like raising the fees for airline companies pay for for airport security, that's on the revenue side and on the spending side, curbing federal retirement which some lawmakers don't like but it's a way to get some money. >> jon, thanks for the update. appreciate it very much. john harwood. ty, up to you. >> herbal life may be turning the tables on the hedge fund titan bill ackman. plus, this brings new meaning to the term ski out. how the middle class are get
